I follow complications like a bloodhound
So pick me up, twist me round and throw me all the way back down
'Cos I find my feet addicted to the ceiling when hanging upside
Clear the way she's coming through
With her eye-shadow of satin blue
And her fingernails all painted blue
She's a danger you're addicted to
I never told you I don't know why,
All those years, all those lies,
Cling to my body like oil and fire,
And they will not sleep, they will not tire.
Oh my son look at what I've done
But I am learning still
Know that I am learning still
And oh my wife you are my life
And I am burning still
I wanna dance the tango with chance
I wanna ride on the wire
Cos nothing gets done with dust in your gun
And nobody respects a liar
Time blows softly all around us,
But we don't feel it now.
You made much more than a hole in the sky, boy.
You made us hollow on the inside.
It's not my fault
It can't be my fault
That you speak to me the way you do
Now I'm split in two
I'm half me and half you
But I hate us both, don't you?
You were from the North, I was from the South
We were form opposite places, different towns
But I knew it was good and you knew it was too
Feel it falling off like clothing
Taste it rolling on your tongue
See the lights above you glowing
Oh and breathe them deep into your lungs
Hiding somewhere in the corner
Where the shadow wraps around her
And our torches cannot find her
She will stay there till the morning
I don't need a slap in the face, I'm already at the bottom of the sea.
Should have known this armour was heavy when the battle was declared by me.
So the gloodgates open but nothing comes out
I'm feeling no relief in my head, just doubt
But my heart keeps telling me 'hold your ground
Your warm whispers
Out of the dark they carry my heart
Your warm whispers
Into the dawn they carry me through
And I'm weeping warm honey and milk
I don't know what I've done
Or if I like what I've begun
But something told me to run
And honey you know me it's all or none
